Stage Dive #1
Publication date: 1st July 2013
What a seriously FAN-tastic Rock Star romance! Who amongst us hasn't dreamt of marrying a bad boy rock star? If you have then Lick is right up your street.
Evelyn gets roaring drunk in Vegas with friends and wakes up the next morning with not only an enormous hangover but with a huge wedding ring on her finger and her new husbands name tattooed on her arse. Lying beside her is David Ferris guitarist and all round rock god from the super hot band Stage Dive and he is now Evelyn's brand new husband.
Instead of wanting a quickie annulment (a la Britney Spears) David actual wants Evelyn and is quite annoyed that she remembers nothing about their night together because he does remember and he thought that they had really clicked. It's a bit of a shame that Evelyn is initially drawing a blank because it becomes clear that David is an artistic, romantic and oh so smexy rock star and now via the interwebz the entire world knows that they're married.
I love a good rock star romance and Lick is definitely worth adding to my favourites list. It's impossible not to fall for David because he isn't the usual kind of rock star womaniser, he's sensitive as well as funny (he declares that "topless cuddles are best") and he really wants their marriage to work. As Evelyn learns to finally stand up for herself and do what she wants to do in life I found myself cheering for them to work it out and stay together. This looks like the start of a good new rock star romance series and I'm so glad that fellow band member Mal's book is next in the series his cries of "child bride" every time he saw Evelyn had me laughing out loud.
